Maritime Museum Boat Burning

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 23, 2014, 6:56 PM


We're doing this tomorrow. I plan on having my camera handy so that I can provide yet another cool collage of this year's creations! Here's last year's shots I took: Rise of the Jack-o-Lanterns!





My husband and I make a point of doing at least one event down on Long Island as tradition, and the must-go one is always the boat burning. In 2012 there was a band playing mainly maritime or pirate-themed music. Normally there is a band that sings any old song that has nothing to do with the sea, so this band really made the event for us. To cap it off, there were TWO boats that year! Normally it's only one. It's only $5 admission to support the museum, everyone there is always super-friendly, and the museum is open for the history-lovers who are done warming themselves by the giant viking-style boat retirement.

My only warning to you is that this event does entertain chain smokers en masse, so if you're allergic or plan on bringing your children, plan on also being exposed to intense amounts of both cigar and cigarette second-hand, as well as the smoke pouring off the grill. As for the boat, it is smartly positioned next to the water, where the smoke does not typically blow toward onlookers on the grounds.

[link] I was a bit hesitant to paste this here but I guess I'll give it a shot if you feel like coming. This is an invite to some stream of me writing a fantasy world where everyone can contribute a bit.
